Smart mapping is Esri's next generation intelligent software for making useful, informative maps quickly. The smart mapping functionality of ArcGIS lets you explore, understand, and find meaning in your data within beautiful, thematic maps. We take the guesswork out of setting your map properties by using data-driven styling and intelligent defaults that are tailored to your data. Map styles are always one click away, to reward your curiosity and let you see how each map style reveals a different story in your data. We make it easy for you to find new patterns and discover hidden meaning within your data.
